What is your most memorable wedding?
Everyone single wedding is unique and memorable.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Relaxed, candid, fun, honest, contemporary.
What about your business are you most proud of?
The exceptional level of customer service that I can offer every single couple from first contact to their wedding day and beyond.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Once you've got a date and probably venue, book your photographer (if photography is important to you and you want to have lots of choice).
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Hand-carved name place holders for all 120 guests, it must have taken months to create.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
A meeting or chat on FaceTime or Skype, confirmation that my style suits the vision for the couple followed hopefully by contract signing and then lots of contact and planning right through to the big day.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
There isn't really one particular moment because the make-up and flow of every wedding is unique. It's the collection of moments over a wedding day that tells the story, not one particular shot. Every wedding day consists of many, many very special moments worthy of capture.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
A tough one as I know that most scenarios have been photographed before. I'll have to come back to this as I rarely receive requests. Most couples simply want me to work candidly and to capture the flow of their day rather than take specific shots - and that's how I want to work, with creative freedom.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Embrace whatever the weather throws at you and don't let it dampen spirits. It'll all form a part of the wedding day story and the important thing is that friends and family are gathered for a very special celebration. From a photography perspective, the rain throws up some unique creative opportunities such as reflections, wet surfaces, back-lit rain, umbrellas and more.
Describe how you got into photography.
A hobby that became a passion when capturing my own young family as they grow up. Eventually a passion that I've successfully turned into a business.
